MLK’s Message Is More Radical Than A Day of Service”

Today, many colleges, civic organizations, churches, and schools will celebrate the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by participating in a national day of service. Answering the call of King who famously asked “life’s most persistent question: what are you doing for others,” many will flock to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, food banks, community centers, and more to participate in a day of action with the aim of making our communities and nation a better place for future generations.

As a pastor in Camden, one of America’s most dangerous cities, I encourage community service. In fact, my church has greatly benefited from the benevolence of gracious volunteers who have joined us in civic service projects.
